The new Brooklyn Nine-Nine series won’t apparently surface until 2019 and will be receiving a 13 episode order which is a little shorter than the series’ usual 22. Though overall it’s pretty great news for fans of the series. It’s currently unknown whether NBC will continue the series following this new season order.
